‘El Gran Carnaval de San Pedro’ exhibit at San Pedro House of Culture

The San Pedro House of Culture (SPHC) opened their Carnaval Photography Exhibition on Friday, February 5th. The exhibit is in honour of the traditional ‘El Gran Carnaval de San Pedro (The Great Carnival of San Pedro) which took place from Sunday, February 7th to Tuesday, February 9th. The exhibition depicts pictures of the ‘Good Old Carnaval de San Pedro.’ Unfortunately, due to a cold front blowing and a light rain, attendants enjoyed the showcased costumes and applauded the dances to the typical songs used in the traditional festivity.

Inside the House of Culture, the exhibition presented the whole history of the Carnaval from the Mascaradas, to the comparsas (dancing on the street) to the masquerade parties and Juan Carnaval. “This is a portrayal of this historic tradition that was brought to Belize by our ancestors over a hundred years ago. The Exhibition is designated to give everyone attending that feel of the carnaval in the older days, a tradition that continues to thrive through this modern age. Everyone is invited to come and view this photographic exhibit which indeed will bring back old carnaval memories and get to appreciate the tradition even more,” said Paz.

The exhibition will be on display for the rest of February. Everyone is invited to visit the SPHC and travel back in time through the pictures of this one of a kind photographic display of ‘El Carnaval de San Pedro.’
